I am laying (floating) an engineered hardwood floor and so far its been pretty fun. Does anyone have any good tips on making things easier. I have all the basics down (expansion gap, tapping block, glue, etc) - but are there any good tips. I will give a couple of examples of areas where I think some tips from the pros will help - but I am open to any tips.
 Glue - when the excess glue pops out between the joints what do you use to clean it up? I am using a damp cloth and it works well, but I feel like I am spending too much time ensuring there is no glue showing between the boards. The flooring has beveled edges so I usually run my nail along the edge making sure it is absolutely clean.  Any tips on cutting around door edges or vents in the floor for heat/ac? I started with a skill saw and have since moved to my sliding miter and coping saw. I get it as close as possible with the miter and than cope the corner and it has worked out a 1000x's better than the skill saw. I was out of control with that skill saw.  Any tips on momentum - I would love to pick up some speed but it just seems like a slow process.  Any tips on when cutting end pieces to fit keep the splintering to a minimum? I have been using a pretty good blade (100T 12inch) and going slow and this has been working good, but occasionally I do get a bit of a rough edge.
I know some of those are basic questions and that putting in a floating floor is not rocket science, but with putting in my own (first) floor I just want to do the best job I can.
